De Moor IV:4: The Tidiness of the Ten Names Disrupted

Updated: Feb 18, 2019



But neither is that denary Number of Divine Names, as they were enumerated by JEROME, able aptly to be admitted: since the Name אֱלוֹהַּ/Eloah occurs there in the singular and plural as a double Name: and indeed, in the place of אֱלֹהֵי/Elohe, which is joined in the words of Jerome with אֱלֹהִים/Elohim, is to be read אֱלוֹהַּ/Eloah. But the faulty writing and punctuation of אֱלֹהֵי/Elohe appears to have originated from the Latin pronunciation, Eloë, which Jerome has in the place of אֱלוֹהַּ/ Eloah, in the similar manner that we say both Noë and נֹחַ/Noach, which Martianæus[1] has already observed on the passage of Jerome cited.

[1] Jean Martianay (1647-1717) was a French Benedictine scholar. He is most remembered for his edition of the works of Jerome.
